Free Painters and Sculptors Winter show 2011
Conflict and Resolution
International terrorism, the global banking crisis, London riots, travelling on the tube, a hair in your food, running out of toothpaste, toe nails in the bath,
â¦.Conflict and resolution is evident in the severe to the mundane; the macro to the micro; the serious to the trivial.
Conflict and resolution also represents the artist's creative process the mind in a state of flux, inhabited by the conflict of subject, colour and contrast leading ultimately to the resolution of the finished work.
November's show 'Conflict and Resolution' brings together the best of the long established art group Free Painters and Sculptors and demonstrates their eclectic style in interpreting this unsettling theme.
FPS is an eclectic group of painters, printmakers and sculptors whose works range from the traditional and delicate to the bold and contemporary. All embody the ethos of the group's founding principle namely to be free from the constraints of populist art movements and fashions.
The group was established in 1952 and was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts). The founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Henry Moore.
During the fifties and sixties it played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art, the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid ideals, and became a forerunner of the current postmodern ideals of free expression.
âConflict and Resolution' marks the penultimate show for FPS before its 60th anniversary in 2012.
